Re: [T3] grinding rear brakes

<x-flowed>Thanks. The thing is that it's intermittant, only happens occasionaly. I've got two more days until the weekend, I think I'm going to baby it along. I'd ride my bike to work but I can't afford the extra 1/2 hour this week.

I think for peace of mind, I'd pull the offending tire and drum off and do a real inspection. The brake pad could be worn in the middle of the shoe, giving you a metal to metal contact there. :O
